Professional Bio

I initially entered the editorial world as a writer, first for my high school newspaper, The Scout, and then for my college newspaper, The Trail.

After college, I worked for nonprofits for four years (two years in El Paso and two years in Milwaukee), writing and editing federal and local grant proposals; requests-for-proposals; business and corporate communications such as quarterly newsletters, reports, and website content; and other technical documents like standard operating procedures, training presentations, and instruction manuals.

Currently, I edit nonfiction works such as policy documents, proposals, reports, and research for entities such as the American Historical Association, Cadmus, City of Cambridge, MA, and Cooperative Energy Futures.

Every day, I listen to the radio show Marketplace hosted by Kai Ryssdal, and I love drinking coffee and tea while working. I enjoy cooking, eating, knitting, and traveling Colombia.
